About Liz

Our primary residence is in NYC. We are a family with 3 generations of musicians and sports enthusiasts. For this reason, the Berkshires has been a perfect place to make our second home. With both the quiet to create, and proximity to the surrounding towns overflowing with music, theater, dance and art, it has given us everything we dreamed of.

Liz purchased this house in 1979

Why Liz chose Massachusetts

This beautiful home has provided a wonderful, pastoral retreat. We cherish the fruit trees and the garden, the quiet and the country life, while luxuriating in the many comforts our home has to offer.

What makes this house unique

We are making our home available for the first time this year and hope to share this special place with folks who are looking for some magic. This is not a sterile vacation rental. This is a home that has it's own story to tell. For musicians, amateur and professional - the home includes a Mason Hamlin baby grand piano.

I had a great time in this home along with some family and friends. Very comfortable and cozy rooms along with a relaxing living room with a fireplace. Pool was great for everyone and we were able to play a lot of sports and games.

A Retreat That's a Real Treat

  • 5 of 5

Whether you're a couple who's seeking a serene getaway or a family in need of a perfectly laid-out vacation home, this is the house for you. Extremely well-appointed, you'll find no shortage of activities -- swimming in the pristine pool or relaxing with a good book or playing the piano or firing up the bbq grill. The owner provides a helpful email prior to arrival, containing suggestions for local fare, and there's an equally useful binder to read on the kitchen table as well. Beds are comfortable, towels are fluffy, location is wonderfully peaceful. A+.

Wonderful Grounds

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Liz made us feel welcome and all was set up when we arrived. Pool was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the secret garden area (we thought it was adorable), the blackberries that were growing, and all the lawn space to play bocce and cornhole. Some of the group went golfing to The Ranch (15-20 min) and said it was a great course. The house did have a musty smell, but we got used to it. I paid for the cleaning fee, but I noticed spider webs in the living/dining area. The kitchenware (bowls, pans) were kind of old, so I didn't feel comfortable using them. Those are the only reasons for not giving 5 stars, otherwise we had an amazing relaxing weekend.

beautiful property and owners !

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful home and amazing owner. Liz made sure that we'll be comfortable preparing the home for our families and kids, sending us detailed document with everything we needed to know and plan our long weekend.

Kids friendly - pool is gated, great place for them to run indoors and out and let the adults enjoy the time off.

The music was the best theme of our vacation as the owners are extremely talented musicians. We could indulge with different music flavours throughout our stay.
